British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran not only rocked Golden 1 Center on Tuesday, he immersed himself in the Sacramento scene.

Coming out on stage in a Sacramento Republic FC kit, Sheeran drew praise for his overall performance. The soccer club tweeted out “Looks like we’ve got a new fan.”

Sheeran also had plenty of love for the Sacramento Kings, which donated $10,000 in his name to Kaiser Permanente, Women and Children’s Center in Roseville. He sported a Kings jersey during the concert, too.

Even before the concert, Sheeran was thrilling local fans. He visited Twin Peaks restaurant and took pictures with the staff, which were posted on Facebook. “He's quite the popular guy since his music is loved by all of us and so many others,” the restaurant commented.

Here’s more from the concert via social media:
